Welcome to the latest episode of Dead Air - the official podcast of The Liberal Dead!

This week, your host Jeff Konopka is joined by guest Jesse Bartel (of Geek Tyrant) to review the latest theatrical horror flick - Mama.

Things kick off with a spirited discussion of the film's #1 opening, the fate of its rival - The Last Stand - and the state of the January Box Office, in general. There is no "What We've Been Watching" segment this week, but it will return with the next episode.

Next up is the main course: a full-on in-depth review of Mama. You'll have to listen to find out the final verdict, but it's safe to say that there is a lot of varying opinions out there; both from the guys and audiences in general. Jeff also provides some intereseting feedback on the film courtesy of Twitter... Don't worry, spoilers are saved for last, and there is ample warning beforehand, so even if you haven't seen Mama, you can listen without having it ruined for you.

Dead Air will return next week with a look back at the the best genre films of 2012.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for the return of Dead Already - our Unofficial Walking Dead podcast - in February; as well as a new retrospective series on the Candyman films!

Welcome to the latest episode of Dead Air - the official podcast of The Liberal Dead!

This week, your host Jeff Konopka is joined by co-host James Harris (of Dr. Terror's Blog of Horrors) and guest Jesse Bartel (of Geek Tyrant) to review the latest installment of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise - the cleverly titled Texas Chainsaw 3D.

First, the guys discuss the latest films they've been watching. Keep your ears peeled for quick thoughts on Magic Mike, Django Unchained, Killer Joe, and more... James also announces his 2013 Horror Film Challenges; including tackling all of the movies on the Video Nasties list.

Next up is a full-on in-depth review of Texas Chainsaw 3D. Regardless of what side you take in the debate, you'll want to hear this discussion, as the guys approach it from almost every angle imaginable and some of their final thoughts might surprise you. Criticism and inappropriate humor abound here, and spoilers are left for the very end, so even if you haven't seen the film, you are safe.

Dead Air will return in a couple of weeks with a look back at the the best genre films of 2012.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for the return of Dead Already - our Unofficial Walking Dead podcast - in February; as well as a new retrospective series on the Candyman films!

Welcome to a special Christmas-themed episode of DEAD AIR - the official podcast of The Liberal Dead!

This week, your host Jeff Konopka is joined by co-host James Harris (of Dr. Terror's Blog of Horrors) and guest Jesse Bartel (of Game Tyrant) for a special extended Holiday-themed chat and a review of the 2012 remake of Silent Night.

First, the boys discuss all of the films they have been watching during this Holiday season. The highlight of this chat revolves around the recent DVD re-release of the original Silent Night, Deadly Night: Parts 1 & 2. All three of them watched it, and they have a lot to say about both films (and the series in general).

Afterwards, the trio head into a full in-depth review of the recent "remake," Silent Night. Without spoiling the discussion, it's safe to say that there is a mixed reaction, and each of the crew has a bit of a different opinion of the film.

After the guys give their final recommendations, listeners are treated to a Silent Night, Deadly Night-themed montage of music and audio clips, including a vintage news report from 1985 on the film's re-release. Be sure to stick around for a special treat!

DEAD AIR will return in January with a brand new slate of reviews for first-run genre features!
